MyFampal today announced the launch of an exciting new emotional fitness tracking service called MyFampal Parent™ that helps parents take control of their family’s wellbeing. An easy-to-use web-based app helps parents monitor how well their family functions as a unit and then lets them compare their results against other families.
MyFampal Parent™ enables concerned parents to simply and regularly track the behavior of their children through an easy-to-use web app, helping them pre-empt and prevent behavioral issues before they can have more serious consequences. It allows them to record events such as arguments, interactions, or prolonged periods of silence or sleep that may seem unusual at the time. The service then provides parents with insights and draws their attention to concerning patterns of behavior or moods.
Once registered, family members and carers can assess their family’s emotional health with a range of simple but scientifically robust questionnaires and compare their rating against other families around the world. Once each questionnaire has been completed, MyFampal Parent™ will not only present the results in an easily digestible format, but it will also offer immediate advice and raise future potential interventions for parents to address with each child.
MyFampal Parent™ can also track their children’s moods and emotions over time to identify potential triggers and flash-points so they can understand when the family is at its most positive or most vulnerable. And in the future MyFampal Parent™ will help parents connect to local, accredited professionals should they need a greater level of help and support.
“In the same way that we take exercise to maintain physical fitness and long term health, so we need to take action every day to ensure our families’ emotional wellbeing,” said John Kerrigan, co-CEO of MyFampal. “As our children move from childhood into adolescence they are developing both physically and emotionally, as well as making decisions that may impact them for the rest of their lives. MyFampal Parent™ helps families with this growth and gives parents additional support to identify and prevent behavioral issues.”
MyFampal Parent™ not only allows parents to track their child’s behavior, moods and emotions over time, it also recognizes the role of the family in relation to their development. It does this by opening users up to a series of proven questionnaires to assess their perceptions and understand the seriousness of each individual’s issues.
Kerrigan continued, “MyFampal Parent™ meets a pressing need: Parents must have access to more reliable information and wider support than is currently available today. Our focus is on pre-empting and preventing behavioral and mental health issues and stopping them from spiraling out of control”.
“Families that experience the stress of a loved one spiraling out of control will know that support is hard to access and can also be extremely expensive. Family mental health provision is struggling to cope with treating sufferers and simply can’t provide support in prevention. Through MyFampal Parent™ we have tried to address all these issues, providing an educational resource to parents, a way to track and identify issues and then deliver advice on how to address them. This advice will improve over time as we involve our community in the development of proven resources.
MyFampal Parent™ costs $9.99 per quarter (3-month period) and is simple to use on any connected device. It is a web based-service: Users simply log in to use the tracker, answer questionnaires or have access to further research and information. Each user’s information is strictly private, encrypted and secure. Only parents are able to download the information so that they can review it themselves, or if they wish they could share it during a session with a therapist or another professional as real-time evidence of their family dynamics.
